Adults & Seniors
We offer a variety of programs to protect, encourage independence and advocate for frail and vulnerable adults in Michigan. Our programs can assist you with independent living (home help), adult foster care and homes for the aged, adult protective services and support for those dealing with HIV/AIDS.
Adults and Seniors Programs
Adult Protective Services investigators protect vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect and exploitation by coordinating with mental health, public health, law enforcement, the probate courts, the aging network, community groups and the general public.
The Home Help program is designed to support individuals who wish to live independently in their home rather than live in an adult foster care home, home for the aged, or nursing facility.
The BPHASA includes Michigan's Medicaid office, services for aging adults and community-based services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, serious mental illness and substance use disorders.
Services are available to beneficiaries residing in a nursing facility and are offered to assist in securing housing and in facilitating a successful discharge into the community.
